I don`t know if this photo is real I will let you be the judge. :frk-big:
OK Ace, you're really spoolin them off tonight! No that is not real the shark was digitally added in the pic.
I have seen this one many times and I saw how they made it once. I wish that it was true that there was lots of those sized monsters out there but it is a fact that not many GWS that size are in the oceans anymore. I love the Pic though.
well the primary food for great whites is seals so what better for the pilot to use for bait than a navy seal on a rope......lol
no pun intended towards navy seals they truly are hard core....
I cant say if its real or not, but if it is real , somebodys in deep-sh???????????ip. ......................... ............................
It is real.... I actually took that picture!:0a20:
So how long do you have to troll before getting a bite? Wonder if they are using a stinger hook or went weed free and have it buried in the diver. Great pic.
Sorry, definately fake fellas. Here's the original.
And those men aren't Navy SEALS....they are Air Force Pararescue Jumpers.
Also known as PJ's. Much tougher...seriously
"Pararescuemen have what some consider to be the most difficult job in all of the armed forces—combat search and rescue, typically of (but not limited to) downed pilots. They are trained and able both to fight with virtually any special operations unit and are paramedics on the battlefield.
In addition to initial training listed above must pass an indoctrination course. The goal of the indoctrination is to weed out all of those who are not physically and mentally fit enough to be pararescuemen. A 24-week Paramedic Course at Kirtland AFB, Albuquerque, New Mexico to attain EMT-Paramedic certification, a 20-week Pararescue Recovery Specialist Course (for integrating what they have learned in the pipe-line training; i.e. combat tactics, advanced parachuting, helicopter insertion and extraction, mountaineering, and field tactics training), U.S. Army Combat Diver School in Key West, Florida (open and closed circuit), and USN Underwater Egress Training at Pensacola, Florida. Their training pipeline is sometimes referred to as "Superman School". On average, eight out of every ten trainees fail to graduate."
Fake pic but we do see them out here not that big at least I've never seen one that big. The are around the GG bridge all the time and near Half Moon Bay.
suddawg thanx for sharing that, ireally thought that the air force was really for book worms and those afraid to get their hands dirty(i am not dogging the air force just thought that the army and marines had the tuff guy stereotype) but i did find that intresting...
Watch out H2O Mellon!!! I see some serious competition here.Is it possible?Could you end up a "HAS BEEN?" This fellow definitely has the raw material to be a contestant.Buknasty,you hang in there,you hear.Never be intimidated when the big guns are fired.I love the BOC and all the people on it!And some think life is not worth living. peewee-williams
I believe.-The Air Force has some of,if not the best and most highly trained fighting men in the world.I have had the honor of meeting some in the sixties,as they are nothing new.They have been around for quite a while.They are not much on publicity or bragging.They are real good at getting ANY job done.After all,that is their job.It has always taken ALL of our fighting men to defend this country.Each has his place and does his part.Without this,no one could operate or do his part.Many heroes are seldom or never heard of as many on the BOC know.There are many reasons for this.I do wish to say this.I have never heard a hero brag on their self,with or without a medal.peewee-williams
No worries Big Country01. I am your atypical Air Force guy, my career field does the same thing the Army guys do, but the difference is I look prettier doing it
And thanks Peewee. My service is for my grandfather, who was in the Army Air Force during Korea. He told me too many stories around the dinner table for me to follow my other friends into the Marines. My best friend TA2D went into the Marine Corp, and I went the opposite (so I thought) direction into the Air Force. So we have some crazy discussions on which service is better. Yet we both know that no service; Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corp, or Coast Guard can function without the other.
Thanks again ya'll.
A new link on the airforce.mil site about the PJ indoc course. Enjoy
Thanks for sharing that was interesting SudDawg.
